As if I could keep this a secret forever... People I work with have begun to recognise that I'm not eating meat, or dairy, and have suspected for awhile now due to my rounded previous omni diet, when I ate very little of either. Surprised that it took almost a year. A year for them to notice that my snacks consisit of home-made peanut butter on whole grain bread and pumpkin seed and dried fruits. Friends that come over for my Sunday champaign brunch are beginning to notice the "meat" in their hash brown hails from the "Boca" food group. That there is a proponderance of kale in my fridge.... and nutritional yeast, and lentils, and walnuts, and soy, and .. all those things most omni's avoid.
My family is wondering why I skip the meat when I visit, and avoid the cheese dip for the salsa.
Even as an omni I ate mostly vegetarian, but now it's becoming more obvious. Due to the complete lack of animal product in my diet, those suspicious omini's are now accusing veganism, and rightfully so. I want to now explain my decision, but not in a way that emplies superiority, even though I feel that many omni friends are making a mistake.
Can anyone on this board help?
